TCU announced the signing of 6-foot-10 Slovakian forward Vladimir Brodziansky on Monday, the fourth three-star prospect to join the men’s basketball team since the end of last season.
He averaged 15.3 points and 8.8 rebounds for Pratt (Kan.) Community College as a freshman last year. He will have three years of eligibility remaining for the Horned Frogs.
TCU coach Trent Johnson hailed Brodziansky’s inside-out game.
“Vladimir is a versatile player with the ability to score down low or step out and shoot the 3,” Johnson said in a statement released by the school. “He was one of the top players in the Jayhawk Conference and one of the best players in the junior-college ranks last season. We are very fortunate to be able to add a player of his caliber to our team.”
TCU has also added guards Malique Trent and Lyrik Shreiner and forward Jalon Miller in the 2015 recruiting class.
The Horned Frogs are coming off their most successful season under Johnson, going 18-14 and winning a game in the Big 12 tournament.
TCU said Brodziansky is rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com and 247sports.com and is rated the No. 21 junior college prospect in the country and the No. 10 junior college forward by 247sports.
He averaged 13 points and 11.5 rebounds per game at the U18 European Championship last year, TCU said.
